There’s another name to add to the roster of interviewees for Seeking Perfection, Mr Tony Genaro, aka Miguel from Tremors and Tremors 3: Back to Perfection.
One of the few members of the original Tremors cast to return in a sequel, Tony played cattle rancher Miguel, who came under attack from Graboids in the small town of Perfection in 1990. After the events of the first film, Miguel remained in Perfection Valley until 2001, when the town was besieged by Ass Blasters, the creature which killed him.
Tony took time to discuss his memories of joining the cast of Tremors – “I had just finished this film that Robert Redford had directed, and it was a very artsy, very fine, you know…when I saw those creatures for the first time, I thought, “Oh my God, what have I got myself into?” – as well his thoughts on the change of the film’s original title, Beneath Perfection, and his return in Tremors 3.
He also talks about the fact that Miguel didn’t make it into the TV series due to his untimely death: “Had I known [there was going to be a TV series], I would have professed that I was just badly wounded.”
